Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic Motorcycles
If the rear brake light is working when the rear brake pedal is depressed but not when the front brake lever is pulled, the most likely problem is the front brake light switch is bad. The switch is located inside the right handlebar switch housing. To get to the switch, you must disassemble the switch housing. Loosen the throttle and idle cables. Take the two bolts that hold the switch halves together out. Carefully lift the top half of the switch housing and disconnect the throttle and idle cables from the throttle sleeve. Be careful not to lose the ferrules that go on the ends of the cables. Lower the bottom half of the switch housing and you should be able to see the switch on the inside of the end that faces the front brake master cylinder. To replace the switch, you must de-solder the wires, replace the switch, then re-solder the wires to it. When you put everything back together make sure you don't pinch any wires and that the throttle operates as it should.
